Obstacles Used In Agility

Different agility venues call for different obstacles in their courses.

Different levels of difficulty are also called for. See my previous entry for the different organizations that you can trial under, through those pages you can find what the rules and obstacles for each organization are.

Obstacles used.

Variety of Jumps:

  • Single jumps. For an example go here.

Different types of tunnels

  • Chute for an example see here.
  • Crawl tunnel for an example see here. You’ll have to go down the page a bit.
  • Hoop tunnel. for an example see here.

Plus some others.

  • Sway Bridge for an example see here.
